Minnesota's Queer Elders:
A Cultural Exploration in Portraiture

Joseph Alexander is the recipient of a 2023 Minnesota State Arts Board Creative Support for Individuals grant to fund a new series of formal portraits, titled Minnesota's Queer Elders: A Cultural Exploration in Portraiture.  These portraits are meant to showcase the LGBTQIA+ generation who exploded from the closet, so future generations can live their identities freely.  The portraits and associated works will comprise a show opening at Threshold Arts in Rochester, Minnesota.  


Joseph Alexander is a portrait and still life artist, and is the founder of Driftless Art Academy in Rochester.


Joseph Alexander s a fiscal year 2023 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant

from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
